Kathleen and I just learned of John's passing 7/2/2013. We are deeply saddened by John's passing. We shall always have wonderful memories of the happy times we spent together. I was in a foursome when John shot a hole-in-one. He was my first Navigator. Kathleen and I will never forget you and Lorna.
